The real becomes the unreal through Andrew Zuckerman's lens. Stark backgrounds black or white juxtapose Zuckerman's subjects for intense contrast bringing out the vibrancy of nature, how strong and how fragile. In his new book, Birds, all the natural backgrounds have been taken away and replaced with white, making us wonder if the image is real or not. A new appreciation and clarity is found in the birds in their new surroundings. The work questions our surroundings and begs us to look before it changes to a unrecognizable state.
